Perched on a hill above the modern part of Denbigh is Denbigh Castle. Built in the 13th century on top of a previous Welsh fortress to create an English borough in Denbigh.
The Castle was built in two stages due to the Welsh capturing it during construction. Once it was back in English hands again a second phase of building started which included the creation of the old Town walls and towers.
The old Town walls and towers can be seen at various locations in the Town and are nearly a kilometre long.
Today the castle is in Cadw’s hands and is open to the public (entry fee applies). On-site there are refreshments, loo’s for users with a disability and limited mobility, and dogs are welcome providing they are on a lead. There is also parking available.
